One of the biggest complaints with the Wii U is the speed of menu navigation. Moving from area to area is a drag, with even the settings menu taking time to load in.
It looks like an April firmware update is set to address this issue, with Nintendo releasing the video below to show the difference in time when moving from a game back to the system’s main menu.
While it’s hardly the speediest, it’s certainly faster than what’s there now. It would be nice if they showed other menu transitions too, without those it’s hard to tell just how broad this update will be.
Regardless, it’s good to see Nintendo addressing one of the big issues with the Wii U’s software, and hopefully there’ll be more performance improvements to come.
